Who is Alex Mauer? That’s the question I asked back in July when I didn’t really know about this composer. That was until after I noticed the temper tantrum she threw that used a nuke instead of a scalpel against several Youtube users.

You’re going to see a lot of TotalBiscuit and SidAlpha. Because these are the two Youtube channels that have been providing the most about these acts against other people.

Alex’s DMCA career, starting with Imagos Softworks

For those unaware about the events so far, a music composer named Alex Mauer had a dispute about the validity of her contract with game studio Imagos Softworks. She’s been spamming out DMCA takedown notices to pretty much any Youtube video featuring their games, her music, or discussing her. The only way to get their copyright strikes removed is for them to help her “Cause” against Imagos Softworks.

It didn’t end there, however. Mauer started striking out at others. She pleaded ignorance to the consequences of her actions, only to later brag about the effects and her plans for even larger acts. When it was eventually revealed that her first swath of copyright strikes had been treated as a single strike against each affected channel, she rescinded the strikes and refiled them in order to trigger more strikes.

There was even a point where Alex started to target other games, sell her soundtrack for $1000 dollars in her own website and got the game she was having issues with; Starr Mazer: DSP taken down from the Steam library.

There have been numerous concerns about this person’s mental health. Since the nature of these notices are very concerning towards friends and Family. She was taken into mental custody due to these concerns. Alex didn’t see it that way and she cut ties with her family because they “Sided with my opposition”.

However, after a semblance of peace that came from a restraining order issued by Imago. Alex Mauer went above and beyond that line of duty to issue more copyright claims against other youtubers again. In fact, she went as far as to issue claims against Cinemassacre and WWE.  Here’s the pictures straight from her twitter.

The case that refuses to get closed

I still cannot comprehend why is she doing this. Especially after being issued a restraining order. She has been doing this since August 3rd and doesn’t show signs of stopping. She has closed every single friendly tie that could help her. And now I think she just doesn’t care about anything anymore.

The major concern to me is when is this madness going to stop. When is Mauer going to see that her actions are only causing damage towards others. This isn’t even the case of a musician who was attacked by the corrupt gaming industry. This is the case of someone with a messiah complex who thinks she’s above everything, even the law. Is there any way to stop this?

Before this goes any further though. I refuse to cover any news about Mauer in the future. I don’t see myself going into a hole this deep. If you want any external coverage, I would suggest SidAlpha and Totalbiscuit.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

It’s intriguing to note that the launch of the long-awaited piracy simulator Skull and Bones has led to a notable increase in players returning to Ubisoft’s previous game, the pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

PCGamesN gathered data from SteamDB and observed that on February 15, 2024, the day before Skull and Bones launched, approximately 971 players were simultaneously playing Black Flag. By the 16th, the figure had nearly doubled, hitting 1,662. By the 17th, the number had increased to 2600, and by the 18th, it reached 3,226. After a week of continuous gameplay, a new peak was achieved on the 26th, with 3,594 players online simultaneously. With the game’s peak hitting 16K a decade ago, it’s a fascinating illustration of how success can benefit everyone involved, pun intended.

One can’t help but sympathize with developer Ubisoft Singapore in this situation. We thoroughly appreciated Skull and Bones after overcoming the initial comparison to Black Flag, which was a point of contention in our review. Ubisoft’s latest release faces a major challenge due to players’ existing expectations and a lack of clear direction for several years.

As an Epic Store exclusive, it’s challenging to gauge the performance of Skull and Bones, especially since console numbers have not been disclosed. Insider Gaming cites sources within the company who claim that 850,000 people have downloaded the game, with the eight-hour free trial that Ubisoft is offering contributing to this figure. It’s worth noting that the developers described the game as top-tier quality and were adamant about pricing it at $70.

It’s astonishing that two years have passed since a standout Elden Ring player emerged victorious, solidifying their claim to the Elden Lord throne by engaging in repetitive ritual battles. The character known as Let Me Solo Her valiantly defeated the game’s toughest boss on behalf of players, earning legendary status in the gaming community.

Currently, LMSH is engaged in a battle against Malenia but is eagerly anticipating Shadow of the Erdtree as a potential opportunity to end the conflict. After the DLC was announced, IGN interviewed a player with extensive experience in Elden Ring, boasting over 1,200 hours of gameplay. They claim to have defeated Malenia thousands of times and even completed the game using a unique mod.

LMSH is eagerly anticipating Shadow of the Erdtree, expressing confidence in director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s ability to deliver another outstanding masterpiece for players to enjoy. The terrifying Messmer, who Miyazaki confirmed to be a significant character in the DLC and on par with other potent figures in the game, is the new enemy in LMSH, as depicted above. Could this be a new adversary for LMSH?

The upcoming DLC for Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, is highly anticipated and is set to release on June 21st for PS5 and PS4. Do you think LMSH will be able to progress? Or do you think they are destined to dance with Malenia forever? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
